I bet you wouldn’t think that pancakes could be a super quick and healthy breakfast. These delicious Oatmeal Pancakes are loaded with fiber and great taste so are the perfect start to your day from my EASY, mainstream diabetic cookbook. Whenever I prepare these I make sure to make enough for leftovers, as I keep them in the freezer and pop them in the microwave for a quick breakfast or even snack! Kids love these and will even want to help you make them…add fun toppings such as fruit, powdered sugar, peanut butter, jam, or syrup. Can even make a pancake sandwich with your favorite topping for an on-the-go meal! Check out more of my easy diabetic recipes
